Path on Tunbridge Wells Common

Uploader's Comments

Historically, Tunbridge Wells Common developed as lowland heath and until the end of the 19th Century it had almost no tree cover except for those trees deliberately planted, often to mark Royal visits. In the early 20th century the grazing that had maintained the landscape died out, leaving woodland to develop, as seen here. This path leads off Major York's Road.
